There has been a lot of buzz about 3D printers over the last year. Prices are coming down and resolution has been increasing. Klaiviel, our resident lockpicking guru, is attempting to start a business around it. We feel that DC414 as a whole needs their hands on this technology. We’re starting a 3D printer fund starting now.
There are many options to go with but we want to get the ball rolling while research is happening in parallel. Price range we’re looking at is between $500 and $1,000 for quality printers.
This won’t happen without help from people like you. Once purchases / assembled / hacked, our goal is to make the printer accept jobs from online. We’d queue up jobs and have a webcam feed to view progress when printing remotely. Notifications would be sent out to the author upon start, completion, and possibly other metrics we can get out of the printer.
- Donate $25+ gets you free stickers
- Donate $50+ gets you a free shirt
- Donate $100+ gets you free prints for 6 months
- Donate $150+ gets you free prints and priority for 6 months
Any size donation gets you on the thank you list.
As of now we have $233 in the fund. Make your donation now (look to the right) and lets get this ball rolling.
